Erwin E. Smith (1884-1947) always wanted to be a cowboy and an artist. As a teenager he worked on various Texas and New Mexico ranches during the summer and soon turned to photography as a way a to preserve the open range cowboy life that already was fading away. Between 1905 and 1912 he divided his time between home in Bonham, Texas, art school in Chicago and Boston, and ranches in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, where he recorded roundups and other scenes of cowboy life with his camera. Smith's photographs, showing both the romance and the hard life of the cowboy, include some of the best-known images of Southwestern range life.
